High-performance shredder plays key role in reprocessing of polyolefin fabrics

Lindner reSource GmbH, Grossbotwar, Germany, has delivered a Micromat Plus 2000 shredder to Belgian plastics recycler Tivaco, which specialises in converting clean post-industrial scrap into high-grade pellets for demanding applications. On its latest, fully automated line the company uses cutting-edge Austrian/German technology to provide recyclate of highest possible quality at throughputs of up to 1700kg/h. Cornerstones of this line are the Micromat shredder and a downstream INTAREMA® 1714 TVEplus® recycling/extrusion line from Austrian manufacturer EREMA. The shredder, which is precisely tailored to the capacity of this extruder, shreds filaments, tapes (raffia), bulk bags or nonwoven fabrics made of polyolefins (PE, PP) to the ideal size for processing in the extruder. Using this pre-shredding process means that Tivaco has been able to increase the throughput capacity of the INTAREMA system by up to 15% in comparison with direct processing of the unprocessed material. www.lindner-resource.com; www.erema.at
